"Who better as a guide to using them, whether stovetop or electric models, than the Queen of pressure cooking... Catherine Phipps. As someone who is in the wasteful habit of using mine just for pulses and stock, I'm inordinately grateful to her." – Nigella Lawson
"Don't be put off using a pressure cooker: buy this book and learn the way to a quicker, healthy, taste-capturing way of cooking. Catherine takes away any doubts and will open your eyes to the way of the pressure cooker. Well, it certainly worked for me." – Dave Myers, The Hairy Bikers
"The Pressure Cooker Bible from the Pressure Cooker Queen… Wonderful!!!" – Si King, The Hairy Bikers
With over 200 recipes, Modern Pressure Cooking is the essential pressure cooker cookbook. Author Catherine Phipps gently guides readers through everything they need to know about cooking in a stovetop or electric pressure cooker, with foolproof, step-by-step instructions.
Shakshouka with Feta, All in One Macaroni Cheese, Crispy Aromatic Duck, Squid and Chorizo with Black Rice – all the recipes included are delicious and will go down well with hungry friends and family.
Pressure cooking is a wonder cooking method: you can make meals in minutes (on average, a third or less of the time of other cooking methods – risotto takes 7 minutes!), it's energy-efficient and food cooked in a pressure cooker retains more nutrients and more flavor. Cooking this way makes life easier!
